Pohoiki and the newest black sand beach on the Big Island

Pohoiki and the newest black sand beach on the Big Island

When we did make it to the beach, we were left in awe at the expansive black sand beach that now covers the bay. The jetty protecting the boat ramp is almost completely covered in sand.

Get the Drift and Bag It, Puako Beach Cleanup

We had a pretty epic morning organized which more than fifty people turned up for. Along with our standard beach cleanup event, we also had other activities for the public which included a toxic sunscreen trade-in with Little Hands Hawaii and a scavenger hunt for the kids with a bunch of rad prizes, including two paintings by actual dolphins from Dolphin Quest, Waikoloa.

Sundot Ohana: West Maui Sports

Doug at West Maui Sports has been selling our Sun Dot Marine Flags for over 20 years. To me, thats amazing! And I think it's great to meet the people you do business with and thank them in any small way that you can. We hooked him up with one of our hats. Doug was super friendly and loved our Mahi-Mahi hat. I think we made each other's day!

World Ocean's Day at Hapuna Beach

World Ocean's Day at Hapuna Beach

Our littlest Sundot Ohana crew helped to fill their orange buckets with trash from around the area. The strangest thing being found by them was a plastic water bottle filled with hundreds of tiny dead (and a few live) cockroaches. The amount of plastic astounded the little ones, and was a little heartbreaking when they began to realize how plastic just seems to be everywhere.

We caught up with her and asked her a few questions after she helped us create some custom Marlin pouches for our own private collection.
